in antarctica. with global warming and the increasing opening of the northwest passage, the arctic, canada is debating refurbishing its fleet. the russians have come over and planted flags on the north pole. this is an area of future interest for all three nations. but the coast guard is not getting the resources it needs to recapitalize that icebreaker fleet. what will happen there? will we just be shut out of the arctic and have to depend on the canadiens to get there? >> not at all. because guard cutter healy is above alaska, asserting our sovereignty, mapping out the ocean floor, and working with the canadiens up there. but you bring a great question. that is why i got back two weeks ago from a trip up there. we were conducting something called arctic crossroads, the third year of a project we are doing to exercise of their in the greater open water that we have to test our coastguard assets and our resources to see what the might -- the right mix might be of their -- might be up there. we found a cruise ship that had run aground on an uncharted rock in the canadian waters. canada did

to canada as this category 3 storm draws closer. but forecasters now say the storms should weak ton a category 2 by the time it scrapes up against north carolina's outer banks later tonight and possibly down to a category 1 when it goes by or into massachusetts. nasa now has provided a new image of earl. the space agency reports it took this shot, just after midnight eastern time today and even though earl has lost some of the power since then, you can still get a sense of how enormous this storm is. hours ago, north carolina's governor warned folks in the storm's path it's time to evacuate because in her words, better safe than sorry. >> let me make this very clear to the people of north carolina. once the storm comes in, and it becomes serious, once it is at its worst point, we are not going to put any emergency worker in harm's way. and so if you think there is going to be a problem, evacuate now, but there will be nobody to answer that phone or to come up physically to your house from your local area until the brunt of the storm passes. >> shepard: and a lot of north carolinaens
some rain in extreme eastern canada, but that's about it. the storm is just about over with. so as far as the forecast goes for today, there goes igor. and the nation's kind of split. the southeast, the deep south, very hot. still feels like summer out there. some record highs are possible. there's a cooler air mass that has settled over the great lakes and new england. so it's definitely a split forecast. you can see chicago, 75. atlanta, 91. so we're still in the 90s from texas to florida. more or less in the late summer/fall air mass as you'd expect from chicago, detroit, all the way into areas of the east. but it's quiet today. not a lot of wet weather. that's a look at your monday forecast. now here's a look at the weather outside your window. sunshine, another 90 degree day possible in raleigh, north carolina. houston today, very warm. we had a lot of heavy rain over the weekend in south texas. that should slowly improve today. some showers in the forecast. lynn, we'll sneak in to fall this week. give you the forecast coming up. >> it's here. all right, bill, thank you. >>> remem

is coming down from canada sparking thunderstorms through the great lakes and some of the areas like iowa and northern portions of illinois. down along the texas coast we are getting some wet weather in the pacific northwest as well with the low pressure system and a new storm system lingering there on the pacific northwest coast. another story, it has been hot in dallas this week. and the heat will continue this weekend. this is the last official summer weekend. it will certainly feel like it in florida and through the southeast. let's take a look at the forecast for your saturday. nice and cool in boston with highs in the 60s. a beautiful day from pittsburgh, baltimore, philly and washington, d.c. not bad in new york. partly cloudy and 74. as far as the rest of the country goes, chicago, you'll be damp during the day today and wet weather in san antonio. phoenix, 108 degrees. it has been 106 all week long. into sunday it will be hot in the desert southwest. you notice we are warming um up from d.c. to new york with temperatures in the low 80s. overall, no severe weather is expected this
this morning. is any other place in harm's way? >> newfoundland, canada. so as this storm begins to accelerate, folks in canada are going to have to deal with it, as well. i think the big story with this storm is how big it was. and because of the actual size of this thing, they had tropical storm-force and hurricane-force winds in such a long duration just that constant battering of the island is where you're seeing most of that damage. but as john pointed out, the building codes are pretty strict. but about half the people at one point, at least, without power. all right. there you see the storm now. it's about 135 miles to the north of bermuda right now, and it is accelerating north/northeast at 20 miles an hour. it is still a hurricane with category one strength. and this is the forecast track. it'll probably scoot the coastline of newfoundland, a category one storm, and then eventually getting into extra tropical -- more like an atlantic type of storm with winds, though, that tropical storm force winds go out over 300 miles from the center. as reynolds pointed out, they'll be dealing with

to ask a closing question, which we do invite the candidates to use. canada is, you will have one minute and 15 seconds for your answer, and the closing question actually comes in from a viewer, who once in a tonight how does your previous history of entwinement make you want the best candidates for the u.s. senate, and you will have the first response, mr. lamontage. but i think the moderator and the union leader for endorsing my campaign for the united states senate. i am probably -- i know i am the most experienced person here. i have worked as a business lawyer for over 20 years but i have worked in the private sector as a chairman of a credit union. i have dealt with health care and the issues we're facing. critical issues. i have the expertise to be ready on day one to serve you. our nation is in crisis. we need to nominate and elect the person who is ready on day one to advance the conservative agenda which washington is really crying out for, when the police and constitutional principles, of limited government, of a balanced budget, fiscal responsibility, and national security, t
, it really should be making its way up to eastern canada. precip, we could see a couple of inches on top of what we saw for portions of eastern north carolina, and the heaviest of rain really for new england and eastern long island, but the good news is we've downgraded the storm, so obviously, this is not up to date, so we're down to a cat one, but the track is basically the same, just brushing eastern massachusetts. so we could still see a big hit from the hurricane across this region and we're going to have to monitor that, but the good news is the storm is weakening and it's moving quickly, you know, so we can just cross our fingers jenna. that's the best case scenario and we'll all have a fantastic labor day weekend once earl is out of here. jenna: that sounds perfect, that's the way we want to end the weather report. i know you've got to get back and check those hurricane reports as well. still a cat 1-rbgs still a hurricane. we can't disregard that. >> we can't disregard that but it's weakening. jenna: good news. thank you very much. jon: the maps aren't to -- up to date because t
. they added those two in and canada against him. i can tell you in our visit to the beef connection. we were able to confirm that he is not the only person in louisiana who great -- who drinks that brand of vodka. the key fact that they rely on is a notation that someone at this table had two absoluts. they submitted that to use the they could throw it in the next for a refusal of a federal judge. -- recusal. the house suggests that such meals were intended to influence him and get him to help with bonds. they would get bonds. now they concede that he never set them too high or too low. they did not cite any bonds that were invalid. this guy did not even deserve one. after our deposition, the house had to concede this point. you will hear from both of them that they did not believe judge porteous was influenced by neil's or gifts in the bonds. there was an of beef for bonds. they have both testified that the judge regularly it rejected bond fund them and could not be bought. he will hear from the criminal court, mr. griffin, that he said any representation made by then the check out with the
my -- the gingrich, the howard dean canada. we both like ideas, he is a medical doctor. i'm a historian. we like debating. i think part of us is fund -- i have a similar relationship with robert reischauer. we like bouncing things off of each other like ideas. >> your president in 2013. explain how you would structure the white house. which you surround yourself with? what kind of administration would you want to have? >> that's a very subtle and important question. i've gone back, reading a lot about lincoln. he comes into a very tiny government and has to fight the civil war. his background as an administrator is that he has been all lawyer. lincoln had the advantage that he was the only true genius to was the president and his learning curve was unbelievable. it is clear that government these days is dysfunctional. it does not work. it starts with your possession of the white house. i will tell you one story that bothers me. i was very fortunate to spend 20 years in the legislative branch. the bush administration was very generous and allowed me to work as a volunteer i
